Every year, low-lying areas of India witness heavy spell of monsoon rains. This is followed by devastating floods and landslides. For thousands of people, this means a loss of shelter, land and livelihood. This year has been no different. In the second week of June alone, over 2 lakh* people from Assam, Manipur, Tripura and Mizoram have been affected.
Flood water has washed away and damaged the homes of thousands of people in these 4 states who are now living in relief camps and makeshift shelters. They have almost no access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation facilities. Due to waterlogged surroundings and unavailability of toilets, people are resorting to open defecation, leading to an epidemic of water-borne diseases. This will create a second disaster for people who are already suffering.
According to media reports, 10,710 people have taken shelter in relief camps in Karimganj district, Assam and more than 3,500 families have been rendered homeless in Tripura alone.
